Home Performance Index Version 2.0 is now pre approved by the International Well Building Institute as a Health and Wellness rating system making only the 2nd system apart from their own globally for use in their WELL Community standard.
The WELL Community Standard builds upon the WELL Building Standard and aims to impact individuals throughout the public spaces where they spend their days. The vision for a WELL community is inclusive, integrated and resilient, fostering high levels of social engagement.
This enables developers who are certifying developments to the Well communities to use an Irish certification system fully integrated into the Irish regulatory and planning system. Version 2.0 includes additional health performance indicators such as radon testing to ensure higher quality control on site.
Over 2500 homes are now registered for certification under the Home Performance Index, including affordable, public and private housing.
